To celebrate all volunteers and to get you thinking more deeply about volunteering we would like to present stories from our own OCSV members as examples of the satisfaction that being a volunteer in your community can bring. The third is from Keith, also a long time volunteer with the group.
Under the fine tutelage of Shirley I started to do a morning shift in the CS office about 5 years ago. Contacting seniors through the KIT program ( some of them quite a few years younger than me!) has been fun. They are a fine group of folks and are so appreciative of the contacts we make with them every morning. Prior to my shifts in the Qualicum office I was involved with Speedwatch for over 10 years.
If you would like to join Keith and the rest of the OCSV group, please visit our Volunteer Page for more information.
